Kimberly-Clark today announced it earned a perfect score on Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation's 2017 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees.
“At Kimberly-Clark, we are guided by our core values of caring and authenticity. Supporting our LGBT employees is an important part of our overall commitment to a more diverse and inclusive global organization,” said Sylvia Wilks, Kimberly-Clark’s vice president of procurement, and co-executive sponsor of PRIDE, the company’s LGBT employee resource group. “We thrive as a business when all employees feel inspired to do their best work, individually and collectively. Our persistent effort is to foster an environment where people can not only come to work and have a rewarding professional life, but also see their personal values reflected in the workplace they’ve chosen.”
The CEI is conducted annually by the HRC, the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBT Americans. Now in its fifteenth year, the CEI honors employers who embrace LGBT inclusion as a best business practice. The Index is an integral part of the HRC’s program to drive cultural shifts for businesses to foster greater inclusion of the entire LGBT community.
“Kimberly-Clark is proud to be recognized with a score of 100% in this important index,” said Aimee Zaleski, assistant general counsel for Kimberly-Clark, and leader of the PRIDE resource group’s Benefits and Policy Committee. “The perfect score reflects the commitment we’ve made as a company to workplace equality, for its LGBT employees and diversity and inclusion as a whole.”
